dc.description.abstractI aggregate multiple experiences into large-scale India ink and acrylic paintings on paper, building up calligraphic marks, and large strokes of color to create a visual journey through the veil of time, distance and action. My paintings are based on personal experiences of hiking and backpacking in alpine environments. This thesis examines the influences of history, art, science and culture on an individual's understanding of nature, especially in America. The role of illegible writing is also discussed in relation to my paintings, as well as other artists who have influenced my artwork formally and conceptually. I believe that nature has an intrinsic value that should be celebrated and protected. As viewers begin to understand their emotions and perceptions in relation to nature, perhaps they will discover something new about themselves.en
